Philadelphia Inquirer

By Carrie Rickey
In describing the conflict of a woman who has it all without enjoying it all, Pearson's book had teeth. McKenna's screenplay has only a smile. But is it ever good to laugh.

Miami Herald

By Connie Ogle
The humor tends to be broad, but the spritely pace doesn't allow for too much lingering on the jokes that don't land (really, we've seen enough morning sickness bits to make us gag).

New York Daily News

By Elizabeth Weitzman
From the wry narration to the girlish mannerisms, Parker really does turn this film into "Sex and the Kiddies."

Amusing, but formulaic, romantic comedy.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
Has nothing remotely new or comical in its arsenal. In fact, this vacuous farce has nothing original to say about marriage, working parenthood, child-rearing or corporate America.

Movieline

After a while, you stop hoping she'll tell her family to suck it up and watch some TV and then drink a bottle of rosé all by herself, and instead settle for wishing she'd develop a smidgen of self worth.

Boston Globe

Occasionally veers so far into absurdity that it manages to make its central character - capable, smart, working mom Kate Reddy - look like a nitwit.

Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
The second insurmountable problem is the difference between Parker's performance as a fortysomething banker, wife, and mother musing (in voice-over) at her computer and her previous performance as a single, thirtysomething girl-about-town in "Sex and the City": There is none. I don't know why she does it.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
Long after lice from her children's school infested Kate's scalp, I was scratching my head about why a 91-minute movie seemed so long. The answer came from reframing the question. Why was a string of sitcom problems stretched to 91 minutes?

San Francisco Chronicle

By Amy Biancolli
Spiffy-looking, well-intentioned but ultimately witless film.
